Just got my new i20s

22 posts in this topic

I just received these yesterday after the long 9 day wait and boy was it worth it! I got these clubs custom fitted, CFS Stiff shafts Black dot and I just got off the driving range from hitting the full set for the first time and could not be happier with my purchase. I hit these clubs smoother and straighter than i have ever hit irons before. it would appear as though the whole club face is a sweet spot making them very forgiving. I highly recommend these irons to anyone with even moderate skill or above. I could swear i gained about 5 or 10 yards per club out of all this as well. Ping really came out with a great model this year. VERY IMPRESSED!

I play to a 12 hndcp and have the G15s...was strongly considering the i20s but am a little concerned they are beyond my abilities.  Your initial results have me intrigued to say the least.  I have an appointment for an upcoming PING fitting with the sole intent of trying the i20s.  I hope for similar results!

I am around a 15 hndcp and have the g5's and have been thinking about getting new irons. I went out yesterday and wanted to get fitted for new pings. After swinging the i20's, I didnt want to swing anything else but i swung the g20's and didnt like them at all. The i20's feel so smooth when hit, and is more forgiving then i thought they would be. I went and placed my order for the i20's (4-pw,sw) and can not wait till they get here.

You have made a great choice. I have played two full rounds with mine and my ball striking and accuracy have already shown improvement. What setting/shafts did you get with yours?

I love mine. I bought the driver and 3 wood as well. Probably get an i 20 hybrid too. Ping has hit a home run with these sticks.

I love my driver and will never put a 3 wood in my bag again but I like the way there i20 17* hybrid felt but I love my g5 19* hybrid right now. I might look at there i20 5 wood too.

I also just got an email today from the place I ordered my i20's from. They just received my clubs today and will be shipping them out tomorrow. I got them 2nd day air so HOPEFULLY I will have them before I play on Sunday.

I had a chance to demo a g15 7iron side by side with an i15 7iron and found the i15 to be plenty forgiving and my handicap is probably around 30+. I just have a hard time mentally with the clunky look of the G series and similar irons.

Here is a recent Ping i20 Irons Review from the 2nd Swing Golf Blog-- WITH pictures everyone!

To some up the review: The Ping i20 irons compete in the player's club market, but are far more forgiving than most in that class, making them great for mid-handicappers as well!  Time and time again I've heard how forgiving these bad boys are, makes me want to hit them myself!

The i20 7iron to the g20 iron is an even more striking comparison.  Both equally forgiving, but the i20 is more workable.  This review actually compares the i20 7iron VS G20 7iron specifically:

"They’re [i20s] a player’s club, but mid-handicappers could certainly benefit.  Just the other day I sold a set to a guy who blended the G20’s with the i20’s.  Everything from the 7-iron through Wedge was i20.  I fitted him at the 7-iron for both the G20 and i20, and we found out that he hit the i20 7-iron equally as well as the G20 7-iron.  So, he went with the i20 because it allows him more workability.

Played with my new i20's on Sunday. I shot an 83 (which is a pretty good round for me). They feel great and a lot more forgiving then I thought they would be. Great clubs.

I own them in green dot 2 upright with stock ping stiff shafts.  I have broken my person best rounds 4 times since owning them.  I also have the driver 9.5 with stock stiff and I have never driven the ball this well in my life.  And I also have the 14 degree 3 wood in project x 6.0 and I can say that after not having a 3 wood in my bag for the last 3 years because I just can not hit one, I am now a green hitting machine on the par 5's.  And I have yet to miss a fairway when I opt to tee off with it.  I am so impressed with Ping that I just added a 58 degree tour s wedge.  I am a long time Taylormade honk and I just got fed up with a new set of irons and drivers come out from them what seems like every other week, I decided to make a huge change.  I have never been happier I am now a Ping guy for life.

After being fit, I finally took the plunge and bought the i20s (7-UW)...green dot, +1" and dynamic gold X100 shafts.  They are a massive improvement for my game from my G15s. In the last 2 mnths I have dropped from a 11.8 to a 8.4 hncp...these irons are awesome!  I am hitting so many more greens and just love the look and feel of these sweet irons.  Anyone considering upgrading to the i20s should not hesitate...these are the real deal!!!!

    • I had a hard time doing the hip thing. What happened was starting the swing with the arms. Now I start my swing by literally attacking with my right shoulder to the ball and just ignoring the club, hands, arms. The effect is, the hip is pushed out of the way, it just has to anatomically, the right elbow comes in before the body and you get in a position where you can give it smack with the right side.  So yes for me it is a start with the upper body the thing that is said to be a nono.  Its really just an approach from the other side to clear the hips. Worth a try. I love it.
    • When you say with the right shoulder you mean staying connected with the hips though? Not rotating the uper body 1st right? I really struggle with the legs / knees doing what they're supposed to.
    • Ok. I think I made big progress now. I practised swinging with speed yesterday (without hitting the ball) and measuring club head speed. What I noticed is that rotating my hips and body faster did nothing for speed. But keeping my wrists and arms loose and do everything from there gave at least 10 mph more speed. Also I worked on my timing. I measured 80 with my 7 iron, and around 85 with my 5. Could not measure my driver at home though. Today at the range I hit the ball around 200-220 yards with my seven iron which is pretty insane compared to how far hit it before. I was doing this on hard practise mats though. So on the fairway this might be less. Also I used a lot of lag. So my 7 iron probably behaved more like 6 or even 5 iron. Ok. Now for the driver. I did some corrections to my hand position and stance. No slice anymore which of course makes the ball flight straighter and longer. I hit is pretty consistently 220 yards. Which is pretty interesting since this is NOT a lot of longer than I hit my 7 iron. I also tried my Hybrid (its like a 4 iron) but did only gain about 10m of distance and more much inconsistent shots. Now I took your advice and tried a 3 wood. Wow you were right. I hit the ball 240 yards.  Whats is all means to me that I could probably hit the driver 250 yards or more but at the moment I still have a swing problem with this. I should mention that I use a very cheap driver from a complete Wilson set (whole set around $300). Maybe my timing with arms and wirst are just wrong with the driver.  Could also be the driver itself. But I doubt it since I hit the 3 wood from the same Wilson set much longer it seems.
    • do the hipslide by attacking with right shoulder, some find it easier. Try it it also presses the hip away just passively. 
    • Hopefully won't get into trouble for bumping an older thread but this is awesome. I'm working on hipslide, infact I'm obsessed with hipslide. I'm a s&t player so the hipslide is key part of the process for me at the moment. Any of you high HC players onto any feelings that help you get this down?  Finding it so hard to nail. I'm a feeling player and the info the coach has given me all makes total sense but unless I can get a feeling to work towards its hit and miss.  Cheers.
